reid on the floor of the senate only moments ago. listen to him. >> unfortunately there is one obstacle standing between you and congress to compromise, grover norquist. for years he has bullied lawmakers willing to put their oath of office or promise to serve constituents ahead of their pledge to this antitax zealot. his brand of ideological extremism has been bad for congress and even worse for the country. i was pleased to see republicans in congress distance themselves from norquist this week. i appreciate that very much. bill: here now to react. grover norquist, americans for tax reform. good morning to you. >> sure. bill: harry reid, what do you think about that? >> well, only senator harry reid of nevada could pack that many lies into something quite that short. look, the taxpayer protection pledge as harry reid well knows is a commitment by senators and congressmen to their constituents, not to me personally, reid tells that lie over and over again, a commitment to their constituents that when they come to washington they will reform government and spend less money, rather than
bizarre that the leader of the democrats in the senate, harry reid, attacks me personally. the american people don't want their taxes raised. they have kind of signaled that in the most recent senate election where harry reid's guy lost and the anti-tax candidate won in nevada. so the tax issue is a powerful issue. i understand it comes with the territory, that people attack me personally. it doesn't bother me. i'm very comfortable in my own skin. if they want to waste their time personally attacking me, they're free to do so. but taxes are too high. spending is too high. this needs to be changed and i think the american people will make it clear as time unfolds that raising taxes is not where they want to go. >> grover norquist, thanks very much for joining us. >> thanks, wolf. >>> let's get another point of view right now. joining us, dick durbin, assistant majority leader, the senator from illinois. senator, thanks very much for coming in. we just heard from grover norquist, several republicans on capitol hill this week have said they would consider defying his pledge but for some of
-panthers, philadelphia. >> how about that monday-nighter? >> i know. i just continue to worry about andy reid because he looks so pathetic. >> yeah, it's been a very rough year for the eagles and their head coach andy reid. a lot of folks are calling for his head. this team lost six in a row, the most since before he took over. but while a lot of people want him fired right now, i think you have to look at the body of work, carol, for him. six division titles, he won an nfc championship game, winningest coach ever in philadelphia. and i think a little respect, too, for reid as a person who lost his son earlier in the season. you could make a change with this eagles' team, a lot of injuries, including michael vick. but a lot of people also believe that an interim coach in the middle of a year doesn't always translate into immediately turning things around. so i believe, like a lot of people, that reid will be gone, but it won't happen probably until the end of the year. >> vince chelani from bleacher report, thank you so much. >> don't forget, go to bleacherreport.com. carol, good to see you. >> i'm goin
, the president called both senator reid and speaker boehner to get things going. there is a talk of a immediating at the white house later this week. >> ed henry live on the north lawn. thank you. stocks were mixed. the dow lost 42. nasdaq gained ten. they are still trying to find a deal for bail-out money for greece. they failed to reach an agreement twice in two weeks. mary schapiro is leaving next month. she will be replaced by the sikh commission member elite walter. you may want to let go of your mouse and pay attention the next story. you and your fellow americans are expected to spend well in the ten figure range today. during the online shopping blitz known as cyber monday. that is a lot of cash. that is not taxed at the in-person rate. james rosen. >> the cyber monday rush to p.c., iphone android poses little threat to the black friday stampede to brick and mortar stores but the numbers are starting to turn. >> we now have one in ten discretionary dollars spent online. >> physical retailer saw foot traffic decline by 2%. with 100 million people expected to make $1 million in online purch
with it again. thank you, stuart. martha: you have got senate majority leader harry reid saying there isn't much to talk about, that the election shows the american people have given the lawmakers the go ahead to raise taxes. >> americans when they voted raised their voices and supported our pledge. congress is acting in accordance with the will of the american people. martha: reid says any agreement must have the wealthy to pay a little bit more to reduce the deficit. bill: what happens if they don't see a deal? 90% of americans will see a tax hike in 2013. and families that make between $40,000 and $65,000 will have to pay an extra $2,000 to washington, d.c. in taxes. martha: concerns over america's fiscal cliff have sent the markets lower in premarket trading. there is a look at where the dow is poised to open this morning. with the dow, the s & p and the nasdaq all trading lower. speaking of that, a new round of violent protests break out in egypt as police fired teargas into the crowds. here are some of those scenes. >> unbelievable. more than 100,000 people flooded into downtown cairo. th
from utah and said we have to oppose this. harry reid has decided to call this up on wednesday. if people would go to our website, patriotvoices.com you can learn more about it and hopefully communicate with your member in koj to let them know this is not something right for you and your family. >>. >> there's one word with this that you struggled in the past when i asked these things. there was a hint today you may run again in 2016. yes or no? >> the hint is would you consider running? i'm open to the possibility, but we're a long way. i'm focused on trying to stay involved in the fray and make sure we do the right thing on capitol hill right now and also that this debate in the republican party about what the future of the party and where we goo we're active and engaged to make sure we stand up to america's founding principles. >> not a no. senator, good to talk to you. >> thank you, piers. always a pleasure. >> when we come back reaction to rick santorum and grover norquist. we go toe to toe on that and the return of chris christie. [ male announcer ] red lobster's crabfest
, the senate majority leader harry reid the democrat over the weekend, perhaps to try to jump-start the talks. as of now, as the house of representatives comes back today, as the senate came back yesterday, we're still very much in limbo on the fiscal cliff. >> here's something else we know. some major republicans have come out and they say that they don't feel bound by the americans for tax reform pledge. most recently we saw house majority leader eric cantor. do you believe more republicans will stick by this? >> what we're finding out right now zoraida is that there's a little bit of coming to jesus moment about how to fix the fiscal cliff. for republicans perhaps it is going to be higher taxes. for democrats there's going to have to be some changes to entitlement reform. but grover norquist has been really the person pushing this no tax pledge, has been on our airwaves. he's been talking a lot about it. let's hear what he had to say about republicans who might break the pledge. >> no pledge taker has voted for a tax increase. they've had some people discussing impure thoughts on national
a president. the democrats have harry reid. we have mitch mcconnell. get them in the room. and that's what representative governments should be about. no one gets all they want. if reagan and o'neal can do it, r boehner and obama should be able to do this. >> the last attempt at a grand bargain, it was the politics and brinksmanship and it all went nowhere until a final deal that brought us to this breaking point. do you think that the tax issue has to be solved first before you can get to any defending issues, any of the entitlement issues? >> i think it all has to be on the table. again, i don't want to be said what has to be done first or second. that's for them in the room. but the election is over. president obama won. he won fair and square. we won the house. we won it fair and square. democrats still control the senate. slight edge to the democrats. bottom line, it's over with. let's find a way to get this resolved as much as possible between now and the end of the year. so both the new congress and the president in his second term can start over with a clean slate. we have so many
show any flexibility at all at curtailing medicare spending, period? harry reid has already said social security is off the table. we're not touching social security. that's not a story? no. it really wasn't. that was basically uncovered by the networks. but the debate now is entitlements and that is getting almost no attention. >> steve: in the meantime, you look at the stuff and it looks like the main stream media essentially acting as a negotiator on behalf of the white house. republicans need to cave. don't think of it that way. think of compromise because that at thend of the day, both parties will give up something. >> sure. and by the way, let me to be totally honest, republicans have already caved. they've already fallen for it, right? they've already been pushed into, you watched the sunday shows, attacking grover norquist, as if that's the point. it's not. so the press has cowed republicans to do their bidding and in effect, doing the white house's bidding. but again, the real story is going unanded and that is will harry reid and the democrats in the house, led by nancy pelos
.o.p., and will the democrats line up with harry reid and others? or do you think there will be resistance to something they weren't involved in. >> i think that they weren't involved will be the excuse. the leadership, by its definition, figuring out how to move this forward, as opposed to having the largest possible group and the lowest possible time. that's a recipe for doing nothing. that's exactly what has happened in the senate four years, according to the session's own definition of that. so when we talk about leadership, yeah, that would mean some people getting into a room, figuring out what can their side tolerate to move us forward. and to the earlier point, i think it's penitentiary to note that the premise for the entirety of the campaign season was that the republicans standard bearer said, we won't take one dollar -- we won't give you one dollar for every $10 of curts. that deal is no longer on the table. john boehner others know, the tax increases will be a part of this plan moving forward. part. not the only way. they understand that that is coming. the first bill isn't on the table. t
about patty murray. a lot of people are tired about hearing about mitch mcconnell and harry reid and some of these other leaders this is one you want to read this profile. >> we'll get to that. how but, robert? what's your must-read? >> my good friend, sheryl gay stollberg has a piece in "the new york times," about the historic nature of president obama's second inaugural. it will be on a second and the following day, the public ceremony on martin luther king jr. day and how fitting and how folks are lowering expectations given the fact they don't think they're going to have 1.8 million come out, as many people came out as four years ago. an interesting read. >> you never know, weather can always play part in that as well. we're all excited. thanks, all of you, i do appreciate it. and we'll see you again soon. >>> that is a wrap-up of this sunday edition of "weekends with alex witt." do stay with us, we have headline updates. up next, "meet the press," i'm alex witt, make it a good one. ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans?
reid and the democratic caucus to meet halfway on entitlement reform? >> that is a question, certainly. and i think that the democrats were as unhappy in the part of the democratic caucus when the bargaining negotiations took place. democrats were as unhappy as parts of majority leader cantor's kau can cuss were about the revenue side. you made the point that it's a big deal for speaker boehner to put the notion of new revenue on the table so what has changed in your caucus and your caucus' outlook when the notion of new revenue was for a lot of your members not talked about. what's changed in those districts where people got re-electeded having not changed their position at all? we were re-elected to fix problems. we were elected to fix the problems to get the economy going again and to fix the deficit. well, the president got re-elected. we know at the end of this year taxes are going up on everybody. everybody. rich, poor alike. we have marginal rates across the spectrum going up as well as c cap gains, dividends. everything. this is the so-called fiscal cliff, right? so we know tha
, bill. that's what we've got to see from nancy pelosi, harry reid and the president. where is their proposal to actually fix the problem? because raising taxes is not going to fix the problem. we've always believed that raising taxes is going to be harmful to a small businessman or woman in creating a job, and, you know, i tell this story about a cook that i met in an airport. when he told me he came up and says,ase do something about the problem in washington, we need more jobs. he said i had to take a cook's position because i couldn't find a job that best met my skill set in the construction industry. i want to go and find that job to make the kind of money that i feel i'm worth, but if you raise taxes on the small businessman or woman who is creating that job that is creating less of a likelihood that you're going to create the job. bill: you have to dance now and you're trying to thread this needle the difference between raising tax revenues and tax rates, there is a distinction i get it. do your constituents get it? are they going to look at you and say, hey you guys
in washington, senate leaders, they are speaking out. you have democrat harry reid saying the president won the election. and it is time for republicans to fall in line. meantime, republican mitch mcconnell not impressed with the president's plans to go back on the road. take a listen. >> look, we already know the president is a very good campaigner, congratulate him on his re-election. what we don't know is whether he has the leadership qualities necessary to lead it a bipartisan agreement on big issues, like we currently face. >> last year of his campaign, every place he went, that's what he talked about. americans, when they voted, raised their voices and supported our pledge. congress must act in accordance with the will of the american people. >> let's kick this conversation off in washington. republican rand paul of kentucky is joining me, kentucky's junior senator, elected in 2010. you probably know this, it bears repeating here, you're opposed to raising any taxes, anyone's taxes, even some in his party are flirting with compromise on that issue. senator paul, welcome. thank you for
